Feedly Behaves Badly

Feedly has just been caught engaging in very bad behavior and whoever made those decisions needs to be fired for both poor ethics and stupidity at thinking no one would notice the change.

I have all my RSS feeds stored in Feedly, though I only sporadically make time to catch up on them, and I’ve gone back and forth on whether I should pay for the pro account for my use. I like paying for services I use a lot, so they’ll stay alive and grow ever better, as long as the price is reasonable for what you get.

I don’t know of a better service than Feedly, so I’m not inclined to jump ship to another RSS service yet. I’d probably just restart using an open source RSS tool on my hosting service if I did, but don’t want the headache. Hopefully this will be Feedly’s Netscape Moment, when they went temporarily insane, then smacked the people who made the stupid decisions and got back on track. Time will tell.
